Sometimes it’s fun to learn how concepts in one language are implemented in another. One word of Japanese I like for some reason –shugi, written with kanji that mean “main belief” or “principle” which correspond to the English suffix –ism. Words like Capitalism (shihon-shugi) or Socialism (shakai-shugi) use this word ending, and if you’ve got a unique worldview of some kind, you might label it with the -shugi label, too. One aspect of my personality is that I believe any problem can be solved, an idea I think I picked up from playing too many visual novels and eroge, where any desired ending can be achieved by finding the right approach to the problem and combination of actions. Whenever my pragmatic Japanese wife hears me talk like this, she says I am being “Peter-shugi” (Peter-istic?).
(Now you know how to say Capitalism, Communism and the Monroe Doctrine in Japanese).
